The farmer purchased most of the seeds and starts for the garden this year. One of the things he brought home was the old fashioned green bell peppers and a new one called "sweet cherry red pepper". Thinking it was going to be bright red and round because that is what the photo showed (above) we were quite mystified when the pepper began to grow but was a light green and definitely not round.
We have watched these all summer and they are now ready but we have not been able to identify them for sure. After looking up different peppers it could be perhaps a banana pepper or a Hungarian pepper. But it doesn't really even look like that exactly. It smells and tastes like a mild green pepper...not sweet at all.
